Welcome to Librarium Online!
Long-time reader, first-time poster. (well, I've been posting for a few days already...)
A brief history: I got into 40k (and the hobby) back in '94 or so, right on the heels of the launch of 2nd edition and also that great tome, the 2nd edition Ork Codex. Orks were (and always will be) my first army. In addition to 40k, I also played Orks in Epic (with the launch of Titan Legions that same year or so) and Battlefleet Gothic and Orcs in Blood Bowl. I was also one of the 17 people worldwide who played Gorkamorka and loved it, seemingly. :lol:
I played Orks, and to a lesser extent Marines and CSM, throughout 2nd edition's run. When v3 came out, and the revision of the Orks as grimmer and more Gorilla-esque, I essentially got out of the hobby after a year or two missing my traktor kannonz and Snakebites. I still had many friends in the hobby and so kept up on v3's evolution over the years.
Not long ago, rooting through old junk I left at my parents' house (I'm a grad student, btw), I came across a box of Epic 40k Ork stuff I got when the game tanked after release and local stores were selling off the leftovers. Long story short, my interest in the hobby's been reinvigorated, and I'm rebuilding my Ork armies for both 40k and Epic, as well as BFG.
So um, that's about it. Gorblitz von Razdakka has been my boss more or less since day one. He was originally a Snakebite in v2, but now he's more of a freebootin' warlord, leader of the Vandulz tribe. Him and his trusty big mek, Gulgamek, raid and pillage system to system, looking for new tankz to loot and more boyz to lead into combat.
I played gorkamorka too! still have those books, gotta love the names...
